“SOMEONE SAID THAT WE’RE ON THE GUEST LIST, SO MAYBE IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN WORTH IT”… STILL FLYING HIGH AFTER 2013 ALBUM LITTLE LETTERS, HARD-WORKING DUO PAPER AEROPLANES RETURN WITH A NEW EP ON FEBRUARY 10TH.
The five track EP rings together album closer CIRCUS with a simple piano take of SAME MISTAKES and new song RIBBONS. Bristolian collaborators and friends Ersatz remix AT THE ALTAR and WHEN THE WINDOWS SHOOK. The delicate RIBBONS was recorded in one take by producer Greg Freeman, looking for an intimate, raw, feel to contrast some of the more produced tracks on LITTLE LETTERS.
A video for CIRCUS, filmed by Rosie Collins and featuring vocalist Sarah Howells, has been released in advance of the EP. Talking of the track, guitarist Richard Llewellyn says: “CIRCUS takes an inside look at the struggles of a musician; trying to make ends meet, and make personally satisfying music in the face of an industry that can be unforgiving, baffling and wearisome. But, as is often the case, fans seem to have found their own meanings. It’s those often beautiful, personal reactions and interpretations that keep us writing, performing and searching for our next favourite song”.
